When even the CEO of a seemingly staid old-school company such as Cisco starts enthusing about the potential of the consumer digital market, you know that something is up.

But that is just what happened this week, with John Chambers telling delegates at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, US, that in three years time just 20 homes networked together could generate more load than the entire internet did in 1995. “This is what gets a networking person excited,” he claimed.

The growth in digital content is spurring interest in all sectors; Craig Barrett, chairman of Intel, recently told IT Weekly in an exclusive interview that the digital home market is the most exciting sector for the firm.

Meanwhile our lead story this week is the long-awaited launch of Apple’s iPhone — a device that Apple CEO Steve Jobs is declaring will reinvent the phone itself, thanks to how it handles digital content.

With all this attention on all things digital, is it any surprise just what we’ve done with IT Weekly this week?

This, the first issue of IT Weekly Digital, brings the same great strengths of the print edition, with all the benefits of digital media. IT Weekly Digital will be interactive, allowing it to be the title that you want. As you go through the pages this week, you’ll see plenty of chances to give feedback, just at the click of a button. And we have interactive video content as well, for you to enjoy.

You’ll see more interactive features being launched over the coming issues, as we make IT Weekly Digital bigger and better. And that will be something for everybody to get excited about.
